  • AT&T Or Kinder Morgan For Your Retirement Portfolio? [View article]
    Buy some T and the rest of your new money in KMR.

    If you invested 100K in KMR at closing today ($100.66) you would have 993+ shares. Plus you will receive $1.39x 993=$1380 KMR share value in November at say todays rate = about 13 more shares. On closing day you would get (993+13) x 2.4849= 2499 shares of KMI.

    If you invested 100K in KMI at closing today ($41.60) you would have 2403 shares. You will also receive a KMI dividend of about $1033.29 in October. If re-invested at todays price would add another 24 shares for a total of 2427 shares of KMI.

    This is an approximate 72 share or 2.966% advantage buying KMR over KMI today.

  • Should You Love Williams' New Dividend Plan? [View article]
    Let's see:

    WMB owns around 66% of WPZ units and at least 50% of ACMP units. For the deal not to go through, every ACMP unit not owned by WMB would have to vote no and there are not enough privately held units of WPZ to stop it.

    Is that about right?

  • Our Retirement Portfolio Business Plan - Legacy Edition - Part Two [View article]
    Hey Bob- That would be "bunnymoney" not "bunnyhoney" lol.

    You are definitely a control freak. I'm not saying that's bad, just a fact.

    You say "Our goal" and We gave" as if your wife was really involved in the current decision making process, yet it sounds like she doesn't know how to access the accounts and or manipulate them at this time.

    I have read all your responses to this particular article and I hope and pray you live as long or longer than you think.

    My opinion is you need to act on implementing your plan with your heirs much faster than you currently are.

    Best wishes,

    Lew

    Bob,
    Great plan.
    However, you seem more concerned with the plan than it's actual implementation by your heirs.
    I agree wholeheartedly with tallguyze, BlueOkie, and rosenose.

    I would take your plan today, hand it to your wife and eldest daughter, and tell them to think of you (Bob) as having gone on to your just rewards. Now you could play Patrick Swayze in "Ghost" and supervise and inspire the direction of your legacy.

    Once they have been trained to your satisfaction, you should remain "dead" and enjoy your retirement knowing your legacy is in good and competent hands.

    This will give you more time to fish which will extend your life.

  • Linn Energy: A Closer Look At LinnCo's 'Dividend' [View article]
    As I read the article "LNCO" itself will have to pay LTCG on the shares of LINE that it holds. This means to me the "dividend" from LNCO will be less than the distribution from LINE after 2018.

    I could be wrong, but that's what I think AA is trying to say..?

    Too bad Line didn't follow the EEQ & KMR model.

  • Ultra-Low-Risk Retirement Strategy For Folks Who've Saved $1 Million [View article]
    My accountant does my taxes. We talked yesterday about my MLPs whose capital accounts have gone negative. Fine print in turbotax says it does not automatically deal with this situation. You must deal with these capital gains separately.

  • Young Incomers Portfolio: Q1 2014 Update [View article]
    If you are planning to "retire" at 40 how do you plan to access your money in your 401K and Roth IRA? Have you given any thought to that?

    Do you expect your taxable account will be able to support you from 40-59 1/2?

    I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

    Brucejfern,

    Have you ever traded/sold any of your MLPs in your IRA? If so, what did your next K-1 look like?

  • Weekly Intelligence For Master Limited Partnership Investors [View article]
    Unless you are being sarcastic, it's hard to understand your "highlighting" of the MMLP four insider buys this week. According to your chart, they coughed up a total of $18,830 for 429 shares.

    I wouldn't call that "leading" anyone on your chart.

    If you can, please find out the circumstances that prompted "BOOTH CHRIS H" to buy precisely 2 shares of MMLP.

    Thanks for the numbers.

  • Clearing Up Some Misconceptions About Linn Energy, Vanguard Natural Resources And Other Upstream MLPs [View article]
    Thanks Mr. Gue,

    One small math check under VNR.
    970 potential drill sites divided by 24 wells per year = 40+ years of drilling

  • Ahead Of Williams Partners' Q4 2013 Results [View article]
    How do you determine "coverage ratio"?

    I thought it was "DCF per unit" divided by "Distribution per unit".

  • Are You Really Ready To Retire? [View article]
    Thanks RS,
    Could you elaborate on what you consider a "low risk mutual fund"?

    I have about 3 years cash on hand in money markets that is doing absolutely nothing. That money is actually going backwards due to inflation.

    How do you quickly extract yourself from a "low risk mutual fund" when that risk appears to be increasing?

    Could "TIPS" be a place to hold cash?
